The SAGE Handbook of Social Media Hardback
Edited by Jean Burgess, Alice E. Marwick, Thomas Poell
The world is in the midst of a social media paradigm.

They are bound up with business and politics as well as everyday life, work, and personal relationships. This international Handbook addresses the most significant research themes, methodological approaches and debates in the study of social media.
It contains substantial chapters written especially for this book by leading scholars from a range of disciplinary perspectives, covering everything from computational social science to sexual self-expression.
